We stayed just across the road so thought we'd pop in. It was very busy and loud but a nice atmosphere so we found a table only to be promptly removed because we weren't eating and was asked to head upstairs to the bar. Managed to get a seat,and got a round of drinks. At some point I thought I... More

We visited in a group of eight not having reserved a table. We ran lucky to have space available, what we learned later on. Nicely sized portions of tapas and sharing plates, which in the end are up to a decent price. Will return there for sure if in Dublin.

Really good tapas! The patatas bravas are great and I can never finish a large portion, even when sharing with a friend! Try the nachos and chicken with chorizo too. Nice chilled out bar as well.

Recommended to us by Julien at See Dublin By Bike after our bike tour (it's right next door) - this was one of the best meals we had in Dublin. We ordered the specials of the pizza ciabatta and the mussels in chili butter. Enjoyed a pint of cider along with it. Great atmosphere and service, beautiful exposed brick walls,... More

Been to the market bar many times. Great for casual food with mates and a few drinks. Tapas is always good, high quality, large portions and great service. Highly recommend a visit!

This place is fab. Always great for food and drinks or both. Love coming here at the start of a night out for a bit of food and then drinks. The meatballs are amazing, no exaggeration. The only drawback is, while the staff arevery friendly, they are so so overworked. I know lots of people who don't come here anymore... More
